No its not hard to replace and test with repair manual haynes or chiltons will do and a multitester consult one of our expert techs online chat or try this
first make sure fuses are good then remove switch and test to see theres power to main switch then each individual switch using multitester at 20Vdc setting
then if theres power to switch and it doesnt work at all replace it,
if there is power but only part of the switch works and it is a multi switch control switch you can test its leads to the motors them selves follow wiring to probe using multitester same setting as you try individual functions up down forward etc and isolate which motor is faulty and replace most motors and switches are dealer items but heres a company may have it

The side view mirrors will not move using the control


There are 2 fuses associated with the power mirrors, fuses F4 & F3.

The next thing to check ( if equiped ) do the power seats still work ?
The reason I ask, is if the power seats do not work, this ( usually ) is a broken splice in the driver's side door sill. The broken wire also has other items associated with it.

Start with checking the fuses, and if they are good check for power at the power mirror switch on the :
F3 - Orange w/ Light Green stripe wire.
F4 is for the power fold module ( in 06 a King Ranch option ).

My power driver's seat 1999 lincoln continental keeps returning to the full back position even when i drive.I changed the entire seat frame with new motors and gears, $500.00 no fix. I have to pull the #39...


does this have automatic seat positioning when you open the door or hit the unlock button on your key fob?

here's how it works:

Seats — Programmable
The memory seat system allows automatic positioning of the driver seat to two programmable positions using the message center, the key fob or the keypad on the door.
Seats — Driver Seat Module
The Driver Seat Module (DSM) is located under the driver's seat and is attached to the seat frame. The DSM will:
  • control the movements of the driver's seat and power exterior rearview mirrors
  • store and recall seat and mirror positions of two personalized settings
  • receive all power seat and mirror control inputs from the Driver's Door Module (DDM) through the J1850 communication network
  • move the exterior rearview mirrors downward when the transmission is shifted into reverse, if enabled.
Seats — Driver Door Module
The driver's seat regulator control switch is connected to the Driver Door Module (DDM). The DDM receives the driver's seat regulator control switch input and communicates the direction of movement over the J1850 communication network.
-----------------------------------------------------
Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Front seat tracks obstructed.
  • Seat at limit(s) of travel.
  • Open fuse junction panel Fuses 39 (10A), 41 (20A), and 28 (10A).
  • Open power distribution box Fuse 13 (30A).
  • Loose, corroded or damaged connectors.
  • Damaged switches.
  • Damaged motors

------------------------------------------------
Also, the dealer can run a scan on your seat modules with his tester and tell you what the codes are. They should only charge an hour to do this. Then you can decide what to do. Call your dealer and ask how much to run the scan test.

My side mirros dont work


The exterior mirrors:
  • are controlled by power controls on the LH front door trim panel.
  • are of a foldaway design.
  • may contain turn signal indicators.
  • may be heated when the heated back window glass is activated.
  • may have a programmable recall memory option.
Driver Seat Module
The power driver seat and power exterior mirrors are controlled by the driver seat module (DSM) only when the vehicle is equipped with the programmable/recall memory option.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Power Exterior Mirror Operation
The power exterior mirrors are controlled by the DSM and are operational all the time, whether the ignition switch is on or off. Using the power exterior mirror switch, the driver can adjust the driver and passenger exterior mirrors four ways.
-----------------------------------------------------
Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Exterior mirror(s)
  • Interior mirror
  • Central junction box (CJB) fuse
  • Circuitry
  • Exterior mirror control switch
  • Exterior mirror motor
  • Interior mirror
  • Driver seat module (DSM)
  • Memory set switch


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


  1. If the vehicle is equipped with memory exterior mirrors and the concern remains after the inspection, connect the diagnostic tool to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel. Select the vehicle to be tested from the diagnostic tool menu.
    • Check to make sure the program card is correctly installed.
    • Check the connections to the vehicle.
    • Check the ignition switch position.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • The mirrors are inoperative
  • Circuitry.
  • Central junction box (CJB) fuse.
  • Exterior mirror control switch.

My driver side power seats and side power mirrors don't work!


sounds like a bad fuse, have a look at your manual and see which fuse controls those parts, they are most likely on the same fuse, the fuse box may also say which fuse is for what, If the fuse in the first box doesn't fix it, try a new fuse in the box under the hood, let me know how this goes, you may also have corrosion in a wire but check the fuses first.
